If you, like me, can remember a time when the epitome of coolness was your humongous Star Wars action figure collection, a proclivity towards daily cartoons imported from Japan and a slight obsession with the race and class wars (i.e. Elves vs Dwarves or Wizard vs Thief) then this video is for you.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

    GO DARK LORDS!

  2. D&D was cool in the 80s? (g,d,r)

  3. I know this is a bit late to the discussion but – two of the players of that game are clearly future movie stars Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) and Jamie Gertz (The Lost Boys)!
